Forum: audio Subject: How to keep track of download hits?

Is there a way to keep track of how many people download an audio file I upload? Is there also a way to keep track of when people listen to it on the player?

At the foot of the item page near "Write a Review" it will say "Downloaded x times". This will not show up until at least a day after you have uploaded it.

The Internet Archive FAQ says:

"How are download counts calculated?

Downloads are calculated per item page, per IP address, per day. If you stream a show today, that's one download. If you view the txt file tomorrow, that's another download. If you download every file from a show's page the next day, that counts as one more download. If you download the same file a thousand times the day after that, that still only counts as one more download."

I cannot for the life of me find now where this is in the FAQs. I quoted it elsewhere once and found it there.
